"CONFLICTS BETWEEN NOMADS AND ARABLE FARMERS; ESTABLISHMENT OF GRAZING RESERVES"
In Northern Nigeria, nomadic Bororos and arable farmers were butting heads over conflicting land use. The constant travel of nomads and their cattle through the farmers' crops had led to damaged land and produce. This issue was ultimately resolved by the Nigerian government through laws that established grazing reserves.
I thought it was interesting that laws requiring education and "rehabilitation," increased nomad productivity as well as improved the efficiency of land use. It was said that the "well-being" of the nomads increased as well as those of the farmers.
